Most expensive places to live in the US

I saw a post this morning about the cheapest place to rent a home in the US. It didn’t have an option to leave a reply so I didn’t see what the city was, as it was not mentioned. Anyhow, in looking I did find the most expensive places to live. I wanted to copy and paste the article but it is 12 pages long.

Here is the site: https://247wallst.com/special-report/2021/07/10/most-expensive-cities-to-buy-a-home/2/

I’m posting the first few “cheapest” then the last few “most expensive”.
